New stabilizer launched

ADVERTISEMENT

DMS Holland and Dutch company BergEquipment launched its AntiRoll stabilization system in mid-September in the Netherlands. The system is slated to be installed in the 37m Wim van der Valk trawler M/Y Vagabundus.

AntiRoll is a roll damping system specifically designed for superyachts. A dual-axis fin stabilizer rotates whilst sailing and flaps at anchor, providing stabilization both under way and at zero speed.

The curved, high-aspect ratio fin reduces drag by between 50 and 75 percent whilst sailing. In addition, with the fin flapping at zero speed as opposed to rotating, a greater lifting force is generated providing a more stable platform. The fin is also retractable and can be partly folded back into the hull.
